Abstract:

Gestures are ubiquitous and natural in our everyday life. They convey
information about culture, discourse, thought, intentionality, emotion,
intersubjectivity, cognition, and first and second language acquisition.
Additionally, they are used by non-human primates to communicate with their
peers and with humans.

Consequently, the modern field of gesture studies has attracted researchers
from a number of different disciplines such as anthropology, cognitive
science, communication, neuroscience, psycholinguistics, primatology,
psychology, robotics, sociology and semiotics. This volume presents an
overview of the depth and breadth of current research in gesture. Its focus is
on the interdisciplinary nature of gesture. The twenty-six chapters included in
the volume are divided into six sections or themes: the nature and functions
of gesture, first language development and gesture, second language effects
on gesture, gesture in the classroom and in problem solving, gesture aspects
of discourse and interaction, and gestural analysis of music and dance.

Linguistic Field(s): Anthropological Linguistics
                            Cognitive Science
                            Discourse Analysis
                            Language Acquisition
